The aim of this Spanish revision course is to develop sound exam techniques while revising the AS content as per the Edexcel (Pearson) specification. Particular attention will be given to grammar and vocabulary related to the following prescribed topics:

  • Aspects of Hispanic society: family, work, tourism
  • Artistic culture in the Hispanic world: music, media, festivals and traditions
  • Describing a film: Techniques on writing about a Spanish film

One hour each day will be devoted to the various aspects of Spanish grammar which cause most difficulty. These will include: verb tenses; use of indicative and subjunctive; conditional and “if” clauses; use of infinitive; passive; pronouns; articles; adjectives; adverbs and prepositions.

The remaining hours will be spent working on board-specific exam preparation as follows:

Paper 1: Listening, Reading and Translation

Listening Section

Students will be set tasks from past papers requiring nonverbal answers (e.g. true or false exercises) as well as responses in both English and Spanish.

Reading and Writing Section

Students will be set exam-like tasks requiring non-verbal answers and responses in Spanish. They will also be given “cloze tests” from past papers, i.e. exercises testing their knowledge of grammar and translation texts.

Paper 2: Written Response to Works and Translation

Students will practise their writing skills and translation skills by answering exam-like questions based on the AS topics above. They will receive feedback and advice on how to write essays in Spanish.

Paper 3: Speaking

As in the exam, speaking practice will include oral questions on articles printed on stimulus cards, as well as general conversation on the AS topics listed above.
